It's Friday, let's switch things up. Instead of following our standard "Weekly 3" format this week, we'd like to introduce a new and exciting addition to CFPC's communication efforts. We call it "Friday FYI"!


What is Friday FYI?

Most weeks, your friends at the Child and Family Policy Center will have a Facebook Live event designed to summarize the week's happenings in Iowa policy and legislation. Short but sweet, these videos are a great way to stay informed on the go! Visit CFPC's Facebook page on Fridays to get up-to-date information. 

Recently, Stephen Dykstra spoke with CFPC policy expert Sheila Hansen about things that took place at the Iowa capitol this week. Topics include budget targets and whether legislators will be ending session any time soon! Click the link below to view the video.


Find your legislator

Not sure who represents you? With 50 senators and 100 representatives, it can be hard to keep tabs. Visit our Legislator Lookup tool to find out who represents you in the state house and senate, biographical information about each one and a link to their legislative websites, which list contact information and committee membership. All you need to do is enter your home address and zip code.
